416 pm cdt Tue sep 18 2018
Once again isolated showers and storms have developed over the
area. These storms are not as strong as they were yesterday.
Convection should diminish over the next few hours as the sun
sets. No real changes in the current forecast. Will continue to
carry daily pops through the forecast period. The heat should
come down as the week GOES on as the moisture content in the
atmosphere will increase as winds will become onshore by Thursday.
High pressure will build in over the eastern us and that ridging
noses into our area. Expect fairly quiet conditions through the
rest of the week. Guidance suggests that a front approaches the
area late this weekend but stalls north of the area. This will
serve as focus for rain development. Have continued to show higher
pops going into next week. The heat will subside some during this
period. Guidance also suggests that a front should move through
the area by mid week next week, but this is outside of the
Vfr conditions to prevail all terminals outside of limited
convection. 24 rr
Light winds and low seas expected to prevail for the duration of the forecast
period as high pressure remains settled over the north gulf.

The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
